Rafting Tours
The Long Run - 1 Day

Duration: 1 Day
Level of difficulty: Moderate
River Grading: III - IV (Depending on the time of year).


The Toachi and Blanco rivers are a fantastic introduction to the rivers of Ecuador. Flowing off the coastal side of the Andes they have some of the longest navigable sections of whitewater in the country. Combine this with the sights and sounds of the forest environment we pass through and you are guaranteed a day to remember.

What to bring: Swimsuit/shorts, T-shirt, tennis shoes/river sandals, sunglasses (with retention strap), baseball cap, sunscreen, insect repellent, towel, dry change of clothes. NB. During the months of March to May we highly recommend the use of a  wetsuit. If you don’t have a wetsuit you can rent one.

Please note: Tour may be shared with other groups.

The day starts when we pick you up from our Meeting. We travel west down through beautiful cloud forest to the shores of the river. The trip will take about 3 hours.

Before setting off we will fit you with life jackets and helmets, give you a comprehensive safety briefing and train each crew in the paddling techniques needed to navigate our way down the river. Once on the river you can expect both the action of thrilling whitewater and the tranquility of drifting silently through tropical rainforests. So while you´re guaranteed to get wet you´ll also have the opportunity to be absorbed by the sounds of the forest and to see wildlife up close from our mobile “viewing platform”. Rafting time approx 3 to. 3½ hrs. (NB. From March to May we usually run the upper Blanco river – 43km, approx. 4½ hrs).

During the trip we'll stop by the side of the river for a delicious picnic lunch including fresh tropical fruits and served with soft drinks.
